The State Patrol is on the scene of a fresh crash on westbound 694 between University Avenue and East River Road. Look for minor delays in the area.

A much larger delay is in place on southbound Hwy. 169. The right lane is blocked just prior to 63rd Avenue where fire crews are mopping up from a spectacular car fire earlier this morning. Traffic is at a standstill prior to County Road 81.  Plan on an extra 10 minutes coming down from Champlin.

Lexington Avenue in St. Paul is closed near the golf course and pavilion due to a crash involving several vehicles, according to scanner reports.
